Wedding Photography and Video at Coombe Abbey // Richard & Cheryl

Coombe Abbey in Coventry has become a second home to the Finishing Touch team. We were back there in July for the wedding of Richard and Cheryl. The couple both got ready in their rooms at the historical country hotel with the talented, awarded winning makeup artist Chloe McCall getting our Bride red carpet ready. The girls wore pretty mint green gowns and Cheryl wore a beautiful fitted and detailed white wedding dress, with a long cathedral veil. Richard made his way into their wedding ceremony room, the Cloisters, while Cheryl had her final photos with her Bridesmaids and father, who gave her away. The room was filled with fresh mint green decor and candles placed on the main table and down the aisle to create a romantic atmosphere.

 

Once the couple had said their vows and officially became Husband and Wife, we took them for their group formal photographs. Thankfully the weather stayed dry, so we were able to take  the couple around the stunning grounds of Coombe Abbey for a quick photoshoot.

Guests entered the marquee, where the wedding breakfast and reception was held. Speeches began and one of the best men surprised the guests with an acoustic song. After the speeches, while guests mingled and got ready for the reception party, we took Richard and Cheryl out around the grounds again for another Bride and Groom photo session. We are so pleased with the footage and photographs, you two were great in front of our lenses!

Once the evening guests had arrived, the couple went back into the marquee to cut their wedding cake before stepping onto the dance floor for their first dance as Husband and Wife. They had The Live Lounge wedding band sing their first dance song. We love live music on a wedding day! This lead to the dance floor opening where guests joined the couple to get the party started.

The Finishing Touch team had a great time capturing your wedding day. Thank you for choosing us to be part of your special day!

Wedding Photography and Video at Alrewas Hayes // Nav & Jenna

They tied the knot at the beautiful Alrewas Hayes in Burton-On-Trent. Nav and Jenna spent 10 years together and their journey as Husband and Wife began on a sunny day in May 2016. 
 
Jenna got ready at Wychnor Country Club along with her Bridesmaids and Mother. She chose a beautiful, fitted fishtail wedding dress with a slight blush tone. It was laced with white details and a classic long veil, while her bridesmaids wore blush pink tones. Jenna’s Make Up Artist Kerry Bains finished off her look with a soft and subtle makeup look.  Nav got ready at his parents’ home in Coventry along with his Groomsmen. They all wore fitted grey suites with blush tone details to match the Bridal party. 
 
When Jenna arrived at Alrewas Hayes, her Father was overwhelmed at seeing his stunning daughter as a Bride and couldn’t hold back the tears. Tissues at the ready for the Finishing Touch team!
 
The couple exchanged their vows in The Gallery suite during an intimate civil ceremony, followed by their wedding breakfast in the lakeside marquee. 
 
After the newlyweds had their couple’s photoshoot, Jenna and Nav headed off to their Bridal Suite to have a rest and get changed for their evening reception party. Jenna changed into a stunning red Indian Bridal outfit while Nav put on a dark 3 piece suit with a red tie and pocket square details to match Jenna’s outfit. The talented Kerry Bains came back to change Jenna’s make up to compliment her outfit with a gold smokey eye and nude lip. 
 
The couple had their big fat Indian reception party in the bigger marquee on the Alrewas Hayes grounds. They chose a gold theme with beautiful huge centre pieces created by the decor company Mahir’s Expereince The beautiful couple shared a 2nd dance together before their guests joined them on the dance floor. The Finishing Touch couldn’t have had a more perfect day with Nav, Jenna and their lovely welcoming families. We are truly grateful for being chosen to film and photograph your special day.
